Remove git commit, leave files unchanged (don't remove changes)
I've done a "bad commit" yesterday (the IDE converted tabs to spaces and LF to CRLF) and I want to revert that bad commit, but I don't want the files that has been affected by the commit to get reverted back to the previous commit.
I want the affected files to remain unchanged while removing the bad commit, so I can commit the "new changes" in a new commit.
What's the best way to achieve this ?
